Racial extremists endangering Chinese schools

Chinese schools in this country are now facing the biggest threat to their existence....and this threat comes not from the ultra-Malays or other Chinese-hating group of people.

Chinese schools are actually protected by the government from those sorts of nasties.

What the government can't protect the Chinese schools from, were threats posed by the extremist elements within the organisation which is supposed to be their guardian, the Dong Jiao Zong, which is the combination of DongZong (federation of Chinese schools associations) and JiaoZong (federation of Chinese teachers associations).

As I had heard earlier, they are going to have a rally to protest what they described as the government's dishonesty in solving the shortage of teachers at Chinese schools. The rally was supposed to be held at Kolej New Era, Kajang Selangor on March 25.

I had written about it and made a recommendation on how to solve the problem here -
A plea to young Chinese school graduates

Now, what really got me worried was when DAP declared their open support to the protest by Dong Jong Zong, which is almost certain will turn the whole thing into another anti-Lynas sorts of a rally - a legitimate cause hijacked by unscrupulous politicians.

DAP vice-president Tan Kok Wai said the party will mobilise its members to attend the rally in full force.

This is one of my takes on DAP's manipulation of the anti-Lynas issue -
DAP's victory in Kuantan last weekend

Unlike Lynas which was masked by its environmental theme, this so-called "Save Chinese Education" rally will be purely racial in nature. Chinese protesting against a perceived threat against their Chineseness.

With a political party like DAP taking an active role in the rally, the atmosphere will definitely be very combustive indeed.

The rally will be aimed at protesting the government's plan to send teachers, who are not well-versed in Mandarin (read - non-Chinese teachers) to Chinese primary schools. It was also reported that the rally was also aimed at forcing the government to pull out non-Mandarin speaking teachers out of Chinese schools.

If those objectives are not those of racialist extremists', then I don't know what I should call them. Don't they ever think how the non-Chinese will react when they get to know about such demands by the Chinese educationists who are supposed to be the most respected people within the Chinese community? Why must they want to chase away those non-Chinese teachers just because they can't speak Mandarin?

Why can't they at least organise Mandarin classes for those teachers instead of organising the rally?

I have to admit that I am totally dissapointed with especially members of JiaoZong for letting the whole thing be hijacked by the extremists among their rank, and those of DongZong. I have always respected teachers of Chinese schools for their ethics and dedication. Letting themselves be dominated by the extremists is really sad.

Their reckless act of opening the doors to DAP political opportunists who have no sincere love for the Chinese education system will definitely endanger the Chinese schools.


I hate to imagine what will be the future of the Chinese schools once they were stigmatised by the taint of DAP and their hypocritical racialist political posturing.

  1. "The rally will be aimed at protesting the government's plan to send teachers, who are not well-versed in Mandarin (read - non-Chinese teachers) to Chinese primary schools"... I Read this as the Dong Zong DO NOT want Malays/Bumiputera and Indian teachers in Chinese primary schools and are prepared to blackmail the Government.

    I think Dong Zong is an extremist organisation, they are a clear and present danger to a peaceful multi racial Malaysia with their continuing chauvinistic demands oblivious to Malaysia's demography.

    Dong Zong is trying to start a fire that will be difficult to put out, especially the batu apis from the unashamedly chauvinist DAP making the fire more combustible.

  6. Dong Zong has all along the years adopted the Ultra racist ways. It appears everything the Ministry of education does for the Chinese school are inappropriate. The slogan SAVE CHINESE EDUCATIONS itself is racial and will create problems to the rakyat. It's not that the government is closing the Chinese Schools but just a matter of insufficient mandarin speaking teachers. Dong Zong should instead provide avenues how to solve the shortfall instead of having a rally with Ultra Kiasu DAP.

  9. Biasa lah tu.Memang mereka dah terkenal dgn permintaan/tuduhan yang hanya mementingkan diri sendiri. Mengapa hanya UMNO yang mereka nampak amat bersalah? Adakah disebabkan UMNO adalah parti orang Melayu maka segala kesalahan/tuduhan burok hanya ditumpukan pada UMNO. Secara tersirat mereka ini umpama meminta orang2 mereka membenci orang Melayu. Ini umpama meniup api dalam sekam...Bahaya beb!!!

  10. Bigcat,

    would the govt do something to avert this dangerous precedent?

    I doubt. The govt is so helpless and hopeless on all fronts.

    1. As I had said, the govt can protect the Chinese schools from external attacks, but there is nothing it could do to stop extremists within Dong Jiao Zong from alligning themselves with DAP. It's another step towards a more racially polarised Malaysia.

    2. That is why certain things like ISA etc is still relevant in this part of the world. Perhaps until all Malausian has wizened up to a certain level.

      and that's why I said the goveremnt is hopeless because they didn't know what they were doing whwn they decided to abolish that all important ISA Act. Even the so called adavance countries stll practice ISA / Patriot act.

      So Najib and hisamudin, you finaaly got what u askd for.. enjoy it then ..!

      melayu ni mmg haprak ... ada negeri dan kuasa pun tak tau nak guna. gampang punya melayu.

    1. Fairy godmother:

      PAP made Singapore a top 3 country in Asia by NOT stealing, cheating or lying. They were high-handed in their approach of governance, which was why Lee Hsien Loong apologised to the Singaporeans after the last elections.

      Najib has other things to apologise for, like squandering of rakyat's money, stealing of funds, violence, etc.
